Dodgers News: A Pair of LA Minor Leaguers Earn Major Recognition in Triple-A

We all know how stacked the Dodgers’ farm system is. It’s just oozing with talent, full of guys ready to enter the big leagues and take off. However, before they’re able to do that, they get to spend time raking in the minor leagues. And that’s exactly what two Dodgers did this season.

Miguel Vargas and Jason Martin earned high honors as the MLB announced their Triple-A All-Star teams and award winners.

Vargas, who spent some time in the big leagues this season, was named the PCL’s Top MLB Prospect.

Martin, a 27-year-old outfielder, was named a PCL All-Star.

In 129 games this season in Triple-A, Martin hit .285 with 32 home runs and 107 RBIs. He also had an impressive OPS of .938, and scored 100 runs. Just a dominant all-around season for a former eighth-round pick by the Houston Astros.

As for Vargas, in his 113 games at the Triple-A level in 2022, he hit .304 with 17 home runs and 82 RBIs. He also hit 32 doubles, scored 100 runs and had an impressive OPS of his own at .915.

He impressed the Dodgers enough to play in 18 games with the big league club this year, and even earned a spot on the postseason roster, although he didn’t play. The 22-year-old should have a much more expanded role in the 2023 season.
